JDR/J-Star/KTM Race Report – Seattle Supercross

Seattle, WA – The JDR/J-Star/KTM ride of Matt Moss came into Seattle with a lot of confidence based on his podium finish at the previous round. Despite his high confidence, his night would be cut short after a crash early in the race caused him to finish the night in 17th.

Moss had a great start to his heat race nearly grabbing the holeshot before getting edged out by Dean Wilson. Martin Davalos was able to get around him on the second corner which put Moss back into 3rd. For the remaining laps Moss received heavy pressure from series point leader Eli Tomac. For five laps he was able to hold him off and secure 3rd place and a great gate pick for the main event.

In the main event, Moss earned a mid-pack start and was sitting in 10th place after the first lap. A lap later he suffered a crash which cost him almost a full lap before he was able to recover. He was able to make up a few positions to finish 17th for the night.

“Unfortunately I suffered a bad crash early in the race. Luckily I was to recover without injury and finish the race. I wasn’t able to salvage too many points but every one counts so I am glad I was able to pick off a few people,” stated Moss.

Next Event: Salt Lake City Supercross – April 28, 2012
